More Paper Towel Holder Hat Stands

I'm continually making hat stands for my booth at Orange Tree, I thought I would share my latest batch


These old paper towel holders are pretty easy to find at thrift stores and I'm sure they are thrilled to be given a new life all dolled up!


I did a full tutorial on making them HERE  The cliff notes are to take a paper towel holder and glue a half styrofoam ball on the top


It's so fun to pick paint colors


Then have fun choosing fabrics and do dads to dress them up


Of course this is my favorite because it's pink



These will go in my booth at Orange Tree, I price them at $25 and they've been a good seller......Just saying for all my friends that have antiques booths and online stores.

Plus....They are soooo fun to make!!

Happy Creating
Carol

These are so charming Carol and I certainly see how they'd be so much fun to make. Love them all, but I think my favorite is the yellow one:-)

I think of you everytime I see a paper towel holder at a yard sale. I just know you could tranform it into something beautiful. I like the feathers on the black/white one!!!

I can just see one sitting out at my daughter's place with her favorite hat on top of it. She's a hat girl!
I'm keeping my eyes out for a paper towel holder. I could have sworn I had one around here, but when you first showed these, I looked and couldn't find it. Hrmph...
